The Isos Housing project, to be known as Weavers’ Court, is backed by £2m from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA). It is designed to provide 58 affordable one and two bedroomed apartments, half for sale through shared ownership, and half available to rent.

Planning consent has been granted by Northumberland County Council and it will form part of a wider development that is being brought forward by Northumberland Estates for the south of the town.

Galliford Try Partnerships North managing director Stephen McCoy said:  “This is the fifth extra care project we’ve secured in recent months and this type of work represents a growing and much valued part of our order book.”

Isos Housing director Michael Farr said: “Weavers’ Court is going to be a superb development for the people of Alnwick and north Northumberland.”

Isos has worked alongside Northumberland County Council and Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust to develop its plans, which were designed by architect idpartnership. The development is to be project managed by Plan B Housing and Elliott Associates.
